Dr. Jonathan Frantz Offers the Revolutionary Crystalens at Florida Eye Health

the computer?  Local Cataract and Refractive Specialist Jonathan M. Frantz, MD, FACS, now offers the Crystalens, the first and only accommodating intraocular lens that allows patients to focus automatically and seamlessly at all distances.

“Crystalens is a revolutionary new breakthrough in vision enhancement that works naturally with your eyes’ muscles to give you the quality of vision you enjoyed when you were younger,” said Dr. Frantz.  “It’s the first intraocular lens, or IOL, that provides accommodation – the automatic adjustment of the eye for seeing at different distances.”

The Crystalens offers significant advantages over other kinds of lens implants and corrective lenses.  Standard single vision lens implants don’t have the ability to provide a full range of vision.  Most people who have single vision lens implants must wear glasses for middle and near vision.

The Crystalens has the unique ability to focus on objects at varying distances using the eye’s natural muscle.  You simply look at something and the Crystalens, mimicking the natural focusing ability of your eye, will automatically focus your eye at near, arm’s length, or distance.

The medical procedure to implant the Crystalens is the same safe, proven cataract surgery that Dr. Frantz has been performing for more than 15 years using topical anesthesia with little or no pain and rapid return of vision.  The Crystalens procedure may be performed on someone who has cataracts, or on someone whose cataracts are just starting to form; however, the procedure is not currently covered by Medicare.

“It’s so exhilarating to see patients who have spent all of their lives with glasses come back for their postoperative visits and be so thrilled and so thankful that they don’t need them anymore,” said Dr. Frantz.

Florida Eye Health offers a complimentary Crystalens screening with one of their board-certified optometrists to determine whether someone is a candidate for the procedure.  To schedule a screening, you may call Dr. Frantz’s  Naples office, 2100 Tamiami Trail North, at 430-3939.
